Away from the hubbub of the main town area on Gili Trawangan lies a deserted beach that’s home to Lutwala Dive. It is a PADI 5-Star dive centre located at the north end of the island, and just a 20 minute walk from the busier parts of this wonderful scuba diving island in Indonesia. Just a fraction more expensive than diving with other diving centres on Gili T., Lutwala focusses on the very best in quality and service. This includes, but is not limited to, open-heel ‘booty’ fins as part of the rental equipment and PADI instructors leading every fun dive – not Divemaster guides. Lutwala Dive has two boats, and if there is a large enough private group, they will have a boat to themselves. Dive groups are limited to four divers per instructor/guide, and the trips go out three times per day. The boat captains are experienced and have current & valid Indonesian captain’s licences. In fact, all the crew are experienced, having been with the company for several years, ensuring that each trip runs smoothly.
Lutwala Dive is set on a large plot of land at Halik Beach, and the resort has three pools. There is one out the back for bungalow guests to relax in and around, a large and deep pool at the front for learning to dive, and beautiful half-indoor half-outdoor pool with a bridge which is the centerpiece of the resort. In addition to the pools and great diving on offer, Lutwala has 6 private bungalows and an 8-bed dorm. All have air-conditioning and freshwater showers. The dorm room has a refrigerator and two en suite bathrooms and the bungalows are twin bed or double, and have a balcony, private bathroom, security safe-deposit boxes, ceiling fan and exclusive use of the garden swimming pool. The resort has a beach bar and a café, and there is plenty of space for everyone to relax and/or socialize.
There are several different special offers available at Lutwala Dive, including fun diving & accommodation, courses & accommodation, and discounts for groups of four guests or more. Please contact us for more specific details and the latest prices.
For anyone who wants to enjoy Gili Trawangan for its peace, quiet and natural beauty, without having to deal with the noise of younger party-loving tourists and the village mosque, Lutwala Dive is an excellent choice. The hospitality is the perfect blend of Indonesian friendliness and western efficiency. The location is just far enough away from the centre, but easily near enough to walk to. PADI courses at every level are available in a number of languages.
